Some shoppers need to feel like they’re scoring a deal whenever they shop. Retailers have figured out how to give people what they want. They create fake sales by raising their prices and then “discounting” their goods to normal prices.
Something occurred to me this weekend that I’d like to discuss here. It’s not important, or culturally relevant, just something that struck me. I also have not any research into this, so it’s purely anecdotal based on stuff that is rattling around in my head.

Prepare thyself, for this week I speak of one of my favorite comic book writers and his recently announced departure from one of my favorite comics.
Before horseless carriages were invented, horse poo used to be a major environmental problem. It would pile up in the street and create a big stinkin’ mess.

Hey all, KT and I are just about to print the next Silly Kingdom: A New Steed Indeed, and let me just say, if you love (or don’t) unicorns, this book is for you! If you pre-order before Feb 14, you get a limited editing mini print, but hurry, before they go back into… the vault- idonno, here’s the links:
